Honestly Jeb Bush doesn't bother me... He has different policies. I don't believe he is an establishment republican, he has some radical ideas that conflict with much of the party that crosses to the other side. I'm fully aware of all the ins and connections web that has made Jeb become a possible nominee... but so far, the choice would be one that the American People can honestly decide with his open campaign strategy.
Clinton is a different story... in my opinion. She is an establishment democrat who's been beginning for this position for quite a long time, and she's been in Washington for quite a long time... she stinks of out of touch rich DC democrat culture. There are too many motives... too many schemers...a Hilary presidency would be a democratic party presidency.
not that I like Jeb... lol
Esoteric words tend to disconnect your audience from your message: use simple-but-effective language whenever possible. My 2 cents. You're entitled to your opinion. Now let's get back on topic.
My main concern is this: Regardless of who wins (Bush or Clinton), does the belief in meritocracy diminish to a point where, say, a child growing up in this era says to himself/herself, "I could never be president, because I wasn't born a Bush, or I wasn't born a Clinton?"
Do we lose that sense that everyone, no matter what situation they were born in to, has a shot at whatever they put their mind to, including the highest office in the land?
Because that would be a loss for this country, indeed.
I will say this about Barak Obama. While I'm not a fan of his politics, I do appreciate the fact that because he was able to rise to the office of president, now an entire race of young Americans can look to the White House and say to themselves, "That isn't beyond me. If I put my mind to it, maybe one day I could achieve something great too."
I believe we need that.
